In 2012, a member of Niger's Ministry of Agriculture presented on the potential adoption of SRI in Niger at the Regional Workshop on the System of Rice Intensification (SRI). In 2012, the NGO Africare funded the initial tests of SRI in Niger, which were implemented by the NGO ONAHA. Niger has also participated in the Improving and Scaling up the System of Rice Intensification in West Africa (SRI-WAAPP) project, which is implemented in 13 countries. WAAPP-Niger's report by Haougi et al covers dry season SRI trials for the 2014-2015 season, which found that the adoption of SRI management principles resulted in more tillers and higher yields. SRI-WAAPP in Niger has directly trained 100 farmers in SRI principles and indirectly exposed almost 6,000 farmers to SRI.
